Around 8:30 a.m. on August 30th, Fairview Township Police clocked a Red Pontiac G6 going 82 mph in a 65 mph zone on I-83 South. When Officer Picciurro tried to stop the vehicle, it swerved between the lanes and got off the Interstate at Exit 35, the Lewisberry Exit, at a high rate of speed. The vehicle entered the parking lot of a restaurant and drove around the building. The officer went around the restaurant in the opposite direction to try and block the vehicle, but the vehicle failed to stop and drove around him.
The vehicle then drove South on Yorktowne Road and went the wrong direction down the one-way ramp to I-83. Fortunately, the officer got a good look at the driver and had a partial registration number. Given the danger that following the car would create to other drivers, the Officer did not follow the vehicle. According to a bystander, once the vehicle went down the exit ramp, it went South on I-83.
Through further investigation, Fairview Township police were able to track the registration back to a Pontiac G6 owned by 35-yr old Michael Yingling Jr, from Susan Road, Harrisburg. Officer Picciurro was able to use a photograph to identify Yingling as the driver, and additional checks revealed that he worked at Rite Aid in Etters. Around 9:45 a.m., Police found the vehicle at his place of employment and arrested Yingling. Yingling was charged with Fleeing or Attempting to Elude Police, Reckless Driving, and Speeding, and was taken to the York County Booking Center.
